After 48 hours in Hong Kong, I was starting to worry that my whole time in Hong Kong was going to be a bust.
Early last month, my family was discussing bucket list destinations, and my sister Maggie mentioned that she really wanted to go to New Orleans. I kept that in the back of my mind, thinking that it might be a fun sister trip to have someday.
Last weekend, I went to Bradenton to visit my grandparents. I lived in Bradenton for a year after I moved back from Indonesia, and I immediately made myself at home in this glorious city on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
I often find myself thinking back to one of my first solo trips, almost 5 years ago. Though I had moved to England on my own, I hardly counted that as solo travel since I quickly settled into university life and became fast friends with my flatmates.
I took advantage of my summer break and spent all of July traveling; my English friend Molly was visiting the US for the first time, and she tagged along on the road trip.
Earlier this summer, I spent a few days in Washington, DC. With all the history it has to offer, DC has always been one of my favorite cities in the US.
What a full month! My friend Molly arrived from England early in the month for her summer trip in the US. We spent a week just hanging out and going on a few nearby adventures after I got home from work, and then when school let out on the 10th, we headed for Miami with Josh on our tail.
